#7. "RE: splitimage focusing screen for manual focus"
In response to In response to 6



Hello again Phillip

I have been trying to focus with MF with 4 old lenses, without very good results (500 F8 N, 300mm f/4.5 AiS, 28-300 Vivitar, and a 100-400 Vivitar). Best result using live view with maximum magnification, specially with the 500 F8 N.

Afterwards I realized that my focus target whats not a good one.

Been thining on buying one of these two:

http://www.ebay.es/itm/281071097302?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

http://www.ebay.es/itm/360527781413?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Tested one of those manual screen on a D5100 of a friend who bought it and not so good results unless you have a lens with a big aperture (less than F5.3).

By the moment and using a modified carboard box to protect the screen from the sun.
